The public works department announced on Wednesday the installation of emergency median gates on the Nicosia-Limassol motorway, and other planned works.

Medien barrier gates create easily accessible maintenance crossing points on motorways.

According to its announcement, from Friday August 26 to Thursday September 1 from 6pm to 6am the gate installation will be carried out along the Nicosia-Limassol highway approximately one kilometre after the entrance to governor’s beach from Nicosia to Limassol.

During that time, express traffic lanes to Limassol and to Nicosia will be closed in sections of approximately 200 metres and traffic will be diverted to the adjacent slow traffic lanes.

Additionally, from Friday 26 to Sunday August 28, cleaning operations will be carried out on sections of the Nicosia-Limassol highway and the Limassol bypass road from the Muttayaka exit up to the uneven intersection of the new Limassol hospital.

During the execution of works, the highway’s express lane will be closing in sections of approximately 200 metres in one direction only, at all times, and traffic will be diverted to the adjacent lane.

Moreover, one of the lanes connected with roundabouts will also be partially closed in sections of approximately 100 metres in one direction with traffic diverted to the adjacent lane as well.

The department apologises for the unavoidable inconvenience caused and calls on the public to exhibit the necessary understanding and compliance with the temporary road signs and Police instructions.
